    Ok, I removed my steering box from the truck and took it all apart to replace a seal and now that I have it back on, it wont make right turns as well ar it used to. Are there any adjustments that I can make of the steering box to take care of this or will i have to mess with my draglink? I did a search and now im thinking about replacing my draglink ends but I dont see how that would be the problem, I didnt touch those and the steering problems started when I took apart the box. My frame is also cracked where it mounts, need to get the weld in brace.

    It won't turn right as well, or it won't turn right as far?
    When you put it back on, did you make sure to center it?

    it wont turn as far right as it used to. It looked centered as well as i can tell, I dont think that my steering shaft and pitman arm would have bolted back on if the shafts werent where they were when I removed it.

    if it turns left farther than it used to, its not centered.
